chscag, I think you are mistaken. From the CCC documentation you can find online
Quote:
CCC 3.4 makes the block-level copy explicit and very easy to specify. Choose "Preferences..." from the Carbon Copy Cloner menu, then check the box to "Indicate when a block-level clone is possible" to enable this feature. When enabled, a "Block copy" button will appear adjacent to the Destination menu. If the source, destination, and settings are amenable to a block-level copy, the Block Copy button will be enabled. Click the button to specify a block-level clone. If the button is disabled, a tool tip will tell you why simply hover your mouse over the Block Copy button to reveal this text.
The default as it is implemented is for the block copy box to be UNchecked, therefore barring block copy. Furthermore, CCC can clone from one geometry to a different geometry, which is not possible if it uses sector copy. And finally, CCC can generate an archive of changed files, when used as a backup, and pares those archives to make space, much like TM does. For all those reasons, I think CCC copies are NOT sector by sector unless you specifically allow it to do so. Perhaps your impressions were taken from an earlier version?
